Locals cordon off federal road in Dagestan

DAGESTAN, October 28, Caucasus Times – At leas 300 angry inhabitants of Agach-Aul of Karabudahkentsky district of Dagestan rallied at “Kavkaz” federal road protesting a decision of local government to give out the plots of cultivated lands for construction of residential buildings and a planning incorporatation of the village into the city of Makhachkala.

The villagers were concerned over the move of the republic’s authorities as they might loose their social benefits and would have to pay full amount for public utilities, at least twice as much.

Deputies of the regional parliament arrived at the scene to negotiate with the protesters who agreed to stop the blockade but warned they would not cancel their demands.
